is back. can you tell? here we go. >> no. >> apparently, according to "the new york post," demi moore has been dumped by her 26-year-old boyfriend. whose name we just love to say. apparently vito has had enough -- he said peace out. we saw those pictures last week of her partying in miami. and apparently he's -- it was a distraction and he's a business guy, got his art galleries going on. he's like enough of this and let her go. according to radar, even her daughters are worried about her behavior. keep in mind, back in february she checked into rehab, she was back in the hospital. she's had a rough 2012, so maybe this wasn't the best time to get into a relationship. so he said, sayonara to demi moore. it's a loss here at "the skinny." >> it is a verb. anyway, so beyonce, she rules the world, like all of us women do. she just scored a $50 million endorsement deal from pepsi, and she's going to have her pretty little face on a can. a can of pepsi. a can of the drink. come on, do you always have to objectify women? >> no, just her. >> she's not necessarily going to be in pepsi commercials.

the lottery so she could steal his money. a judge in tampa called dee dee moore cold and swindling before killing abraham shakespeare. >>> two, major headlines returning your taxpayer money. the government is selling off its remaining stake in aig, the insurance company that got the biggest bailout in the financial crisis. a slight profit is expected. >>> and hsbc is expected to pay the government $1.9 million to settle accusations that the bank helped launder money for mexican drug cartels and for officials in iran. >>> and take a look at this. massive fireball that you'll see there, streaking across the sky over houston. unfortunately, it was not a ufo. simply a meteor that people saw before dawn, driving. very unfortunate. it was so bright, a camera caught it 500 miles away. had it been a ufo, obviously, a life-changer. >>> and it was supposed to be the game of the year between new england and houston last night. wasn't even close. even when things didn't go as planned, as you see here, well, the patriots took advantage, fumbling into the end zone. why not? tom brady and the patriots s

? joining me now, senior economics writer or for "the wall street journal" steve moore. steve, thanks for making it in today. >> hi, jamie. we're having a white christmas in chicago. so it is a lot of fun. jamie: i know chicago, burr. the numbers are also pretty chilling for retailers who do what percentage of their business during the holiday season? >> you know, those months of november and december are absolutely crucial, jamie, for the retailers. about 40 to all their business all year is done in those two holiday months. so it's, not very good news that the retail numbers came in, you called them lackluster. and that's probably putting it charitiably. this was the worst year since 2008. it is actually, surprising, jamie, because if you look at some other indicators, consumer confidence had actually bumped up a little bit in the last couple months. we have, i wouldn't read too much into this because other indicators of the economy are looking up right now. jamie: so do you think it's an anomaly that it isn't going up? is it an indication if we go over the fiscal cliff there's conc

? >> brian: who is that next guest? i believe it's ryan moore, the ceo and founder of rebo innovation. >> yeah. >> gretchen: he's here to show you how you can work out from the comfort of your own desk. how did you come up with the idea? >> close friend of ours passed away from cancer. we were inspired to join 100-mile, three mountain bicycle challenge. but we needed to train. we were having a hard time running our business, getting our work done while cycling indoors and training. so we looked for a device that would allow to us mount or computers, but nothing existed, so we made our own. after training for the event exclusively using what we made and riding it, we thought hey, this is a great idea. it really works. >> steve: it really does work. and brian was talking earlier about how when he works out at the gym, he's always reading. but what i've noticed is, and this is great because you've got a laptop here -- is it's often shaky. so it's hard to read. if you come up with this desk thing, foamy and i'm sure nasa helped you develop it, the computer stays absolutely rock steady whi

"the new york times," though, described her as an encourageable revolutionist to the end. >> she was indeed. they never gave up their dreams. >> "sasha and emma." >> what does "the new york times" say about this book? >> enormously rich book. a great review. great to have you on. >> thank you for coming on. >> thank you for having me on my favorite show. >> it's about time. >> seriously. >> your favorite show because you get a break from halperin. >> and i enjoy the show. >> she watched the show before i was on it. >> i did. i tried to get him to watch. >> so you were responsible for mark? >> i would say for months, you though, here, here is where it is. >> look at this. >> do you want to see huckabee? >> the better half. >> i said i prefer an aging deejay. >> fantastic. congratulations on so many levels. you must be so pleased. >>> still to come, former british prime minister tony blair joins to us discuss the volatile developments in the midd middle east and thoughts on how the fiscal cliff will impact europe and vice versa.
